I am a respiratory physician with ten years of laboratory and clinical research experience on respiratory diseases following my specialist training. My career plan is to combine translational laboratory research with sound clinical practice to improve care in pleural diseases, which are common and rapidly expanding as a respiratory sub-specialty. My research group works actively on applying results of laboratory research into clinical trials.
